I. What are cookies and local storage (cookies and similar technologies)?
Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you sign in to websites. First-party cookies are those that are determined by the website you are visiting. Third-party cookies are cookies that are used by other domains other than the website you visit.
Like cookies, local storage technology, if used, allows websites to store information on a computer or mobile device. Local storage is most common and, unlike cookies, local storage data is not automatically transferred over the Internet whenever the website that stores it is visited.
- improve the presentation of relevant websites and consumer experience,
- we measure ad exposure and online media by determining when, how often, on which websites, online ads, media, and other content are displayed on your device.
